Hi Kunmi,

Varnish 2.0.6, which is a very good and stable release,
can be easily installed through Yum on CentOS 5 if you have enabled
the EPEL repository:

This is the recommended installation procedure for you.

As this is a basic CentOS administration task, please see a generic
tutorial on installing RPM packages through yum.

If you are wondering why your questions do not get answered, please see
